I saw that.  Testing a virt-p2v conversion is a lot more involved.  It
would involve something like this:

(1) Install Win7 on a UEFI-based physical machine, ensuring that Win7
is using UEFI to boot (not CSM or BIOS).

(2) Install a recent Fedora on a second machine (second machine may be
a VM).  'dnf install virt-v2v' on this machine.

(3) Boot virt-p2v ISO (http://oirase.annexia.org/virt-p2v/) on the
first physical machine.  Perform a P2V conversion

(4) Boot the converted Win7 VM on the target qemu.  Reproduce the
original bug.  We have never had the original bug reported to us by
any customer.

(5) Patch qemu on the target.

(6) Boot virt-p2v ISO again, and perform a second conversion.

(7) Verify that the bug (step 4) has been fixed.

While I was looking at Laszlo's patches just now, I realized that I
have an AMD box that uses UEFI (actually - it uses CSM right now, but
I think I can make it boot using pure UEFI).  I'll have to swap some
disks around but I may be able to try this out today or tomorrow if I
can find a spare hard disk.
